WHO WE ARE
The Center for Public Safety and Justice at the University of Illinois at Chicago (CPSJ) was founded in 1997 as one of the original Regional Community Policing Institutes created through the establishment of the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) within the U.S. Department of Justice. The original charge of CPSJ was to expand the understanding and application of community policing and problem-solving techniques used by law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve. CPSJ continues to honor its origins in community policing through its portfolio of trainings, services, and research projects to further this mission.
Procedural Justice Training
How can police executives move from procedural justice being just the chief’s idea to the organization’s core value? From a professional buzzword to the organizational culture?
The Center for Public Safety and Justice has created a unique law enforcement training model that contains specific curricula, workshops, and supplemental materials not only for all levels of law enforcement and the communities to which they belong. The four-part procedural justice training series involves four distinct training components linked together by a common objective: increasing police legitimacy in the eyes of the public and organizational legitimacy in the eyes of agency employees.
Courses are facilitated by highly qualified two-person teams, bringing the perspective of executive level law enforcement and an allied professional.
